THE WORD|Tekashi 6ix9ine Tells All

Updated September 19,2018:

In a third day of testimony, the rapper known as Tekashi 69 (or 6ix9ine) told a packed federal courtroom in Manhattan that he was not the only well-known rapper associated with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, a gang that prosecutors say is responsible for a string of violent crimes throughout the city. 

As prosecutors were about to play a recording of a phone conversation, 6ix9ine, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was asked to identify the voices on it. He said one of them belonged to Jim Jones, whom he called a “retired rapper” and said was a member of the gang.

Original

On Tuesday September 17, the popular yet controversial rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine had his first day of trial. The rapper has been incarcerated since November of last year for racketeering and gun-related charges. During his brief time spent in jail and awaiting trial there has been a lot of chatter regarding his cooperation with law enforcement. Social media has ran rampant with memes, tweets, and jokes regarding the rapper’s lack of loyalty to his team and other rap colleagues. But, with Tekashi’s testimony, those rumors were put to rest.

Tekashi was facing multiple years in jail for his crimes. The rapper has been incarcerated for the past year and since then has accepted a shorter sentence by cooperating with law enforcement as a government witness. When asked in court

“At what point did you start cooperating with the government?”

He replied “The day after”

Referring to his second day in custody. Thus, as a witness, when the rapper was asked to testify on the stand, he did the expected… snitched.

During the trial the overnight sensation, was asked several questions regarding his former gang the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, and the role he played in the gang. According to Tekashi’s statements his role in the organization was majority fincancial benefit for the gang. He claims that the information he was given was limited as to where or whom the money went but he provided funds while they provided protection. Let’s be clear, he left no parts unsaid. He commented on inside information of the organization including initiation, and what crimes they typically performed. Along with that he went as far to naming other members and rival gang members like rapper Trippie Redd. As there was no complete video of his testimony, transcripts and quotes from that court session have been published online for all to see.

As the trial continues, more information will unfold. But after the first day it’s clear that the rappers image is largely tainted. As many fans and artists have published their opinions online. Although everyone hasn’t jumped ship and deserted the artists, his fan base does appear to be dwindling. This trial and his cooperation with the government leaves many wondering will he hang up his career or is there a possibility he will attempt to continue rapping? Considering the rapper has been incarcerated for the past 10 months and hasn’t released any music, it appears his chance for a comeback might not happen. But Tekashi 6ix9ine, has certainly proved himself to be a persistent artists and one who enjoys publicity, he might try his luck at continuing his career, it’ll definitely be interesting to watch.

THE WORD | Alabama Passes Near-Total Abortion Ban

On Tuesday night the Alabama senate passed a bill that would almost completely ban abortion. Under the law, women will not be able to get an abortion after 6 weeks of being pregnant, which is when most women find out that they are even carrying a baby.

The ban would also sentence any doctor who gets caught performing an abortion to prison for up to 99 years. It is said that other states are passing similar bills in hopes to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The bill would only allow abortion in cases of when the mother’s life is in jeopardy and doesn’t allow exemptions for incest or rape victims.

According to CNN, American Civil Rights Union of Alabama Executive Director Randall Marshall said that his organization would join with the national ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and Planned Parenthood of Southeast to challenge the bill in court within "a few weeks" should it become law.
